Shauna Chin Talks After Gully Bop Was Dropped By Claims Records
Gully Bop has parted ways with Claims Records, who served as booking agency for the Artiste.
Speaking with the Z in an interview, his Manager/Girlfriend, Shauna Chin, says Gully Bop was uncomfortable with the amount of money he’s being paid to perform, at events which were booked through the agency.
She says Claims Records never dropped the Artiste, because he was never signed by them.
Earlier today, The Jamaica Star reports:
After a commanding performance at the recently concluded Magnum Sting stage show, Internet sensation Gully Bop will now have to find a new management team as he was recently dropped by Claims Records.
According to a representative from the record label, Gully Bop has become a bit too hype and disrespectful.
“Claims Records done wid Gully Bop. We done wid everything. Him a diss everybody whe start him ting. Him a diss the people from the community. Right now Grant’s Pen nuh inna him. Him dis Boom Boom and Kibaki and a diss everybody,” the representative said.
To make matters worse, the representative claims the artiste has refused to listen to their advice to voice for other producers, and provide radio disc jocks with dubs and jingles.
He said; “When we ask him to do some dubs and jingles fi the radio selectors, him say a nuh dem buss him so him nah do it. It’s like we have to be forcing him to do things and that is giving Claims Records a bad name with these selectors. If a nuh money, him nah dweet.”
“We were trying to steer his career to keep him afloat but him nuh want hear dat. We asked him to voice for DJ Sunshine and not even dat him did waan fi do. Him say a YouTube buss him so him nuh need no selector,” he said.
The decision to drop Gully Bop was made last night after his refusal to do a show for which he was booked, if he did not get ‘more food’.
“We done agree wid a price with the promoter and Gully Bop say him nah dweet if him nuh get more money. Gully Bop caan even remember the lyrics fi him songs. Him know the hook but a bere freestyle him do on stage. No matter how we try wid him, him just a get hype. We tell him fi stop diss Ninja Man and other artistes because we respect Ninja Man and him nah hear. It’s not a good look,” the representative said.
A collaboration with the Gully Gad Mavado and Gully Bop was also in the pipeline, but Claims Records has also axed that.
“That collab was gonna be dropped in the new year, but dat nah badda happen now. We have disabled his Instagram and Facebook pages so whoever is dealing with him now, can start afresh. We are disassociating ourselves from anything that has to do with Gully Bop,” he said.
